Catch a concert, go for a dip, and enjoy wines at new Columbia River retreat

It's easy to think grand thoughts when you're perched high abovethe Columbia River, surrounded by views of sky, canyon walls, andvineyards ringed by sagebrush.

That's exactly what Vince and Carol Bryan, owners of Cave B Inn at SageCliffe,intended.

Floor-to-ceiling windows with French doors and private terracesinvite you to bask in the eastern Washington climate ― evenin June, it's warm enough that you'll hardly need a towel after aplunge in the natural basalt swimming hole.

Go for a dip, drink wine (the on-site winery produces fantasticBordeaux-style reds), catch a concert at the adjacent Gorge atGeorge, and drift off to grand dreams. From $250; 888/785-2283.
